Fox News Terminates Trey Gowdy as He Joins Trump Legal Team


Fox News reported this morning that Trey Gowdy is officially joining the Trump team as outside counsel in the impeachment inquiry.

Gowdy joined Fox News as a contributor earlier this year. A spokesperson for Fox News said in a statement provided to Mediaite that Gowdy has been “terminated” and is no longer a network contributor.

With the news of Gowdy joining Team Trump amid the White House refusing to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry, there’s been renewed attention on comments the former congressman made during the Obama administration in which he said, “The notion that you can withhold information and documents from Congress no matter whether you’re the party in power or not in power is wrong. Respect for the rule of law must mean something irrespective of the vicissitudes of political cycles.”
